Electrical rates expected to increase in Arlington during 2019 and 2020

The electrical rates are expected to increase in the City of Arlington in 2019 and 2020, according to Arlington City Administrator Pat Melvin.


The city, Melvin said, has not met its bond obligations which are used to finance improvements to the electrical system for the last few years.


The City Council learned the news after the results of a rate study was conducted by Avant Energy and presented during a workshop in early November.


The loss of a significant electrical user like Seneca Foods has certainly been a part in the city’s decreasing electrical revenues, according to Melvin.  He added that the proposed fee increases, which will occur over a period of two years, and Northland Drying now being up and operating, will restore balance between the revenues and expenditures in this fund.
